Full description
Take a unique opportunity to visit the sea fortress town of Kronstadt which has been closed to the public for decades. The fortress is located on the island of Kotlin in the Baltic sea, just 50 km from St. Petersburg.

Climb aboard a hydrofoil ferry which will pass along the Neva River through the heart of St Petersberg. From the deck, you will be able to see all the main sights of the city including the Hermitage, the Spit of Vasilyevsky Island, and the Peter and Paul Fortress. During your trip on Hydrofoil, a professional Russian guide will tell you interesting facts about the legendary city. Then cross the Gulf of Finland towards Kronstadt. 

When you arrive you can explore the city at your own pace. You can visit the St. Nicolas Naval Cathedral and then take the opportunity to stop for lunch. At the end of your journey, the hydrofoil will return you to the St. Petersburg, Kuntskamera pier.
